EBSCO Information Services (EBSCO) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) have reached an expanded distribution agreement allowing EBSCO to sell AAAS journals, including Science, via the AAAS platform. PRNewswire brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “EBSCO Information Services and the American Association for the Advancement of Science Announce New, Expanded Agreement.”
The arrangement will also allow libraries to purchase Science through Flipster®, EBSCO’s digital newsstand. This is quite the coup considering AAAS publishes the top multidisciplinary scientific publication in the world, Science, along with five other highly-respected peer-reviewed journals.
By expanding the reach of these journals internationally, researchers will be better-served and more institutions will be able to offer this valuable content. This new agreement with EBSCO is one of the initiatives AAAS has taken on in recent months to expand access to its high-quality journal content. AAAS has also renewed its longstanding agreement with JSTOR.
